American Idol: James Durbin Goes Home: Who is Next American Idol?:Poll – May 19

It had been looking all of Season 10 that James Durbin would be in the final two, but instead two of the three remaining contestants will be on stage that night.

When Lauren Alaina Suddeth was told that she was safe first, my first thought was would it be Haley Reinhart or Scotty McCreery going home, but instead it was James. It wasn’t that long ago when five straight girls were sent home with the boys having a 6-2 advantage. Now the tide has turned as there are now two girls and Scotty.

Television viewers could tell that James was very concerned when he found out that he or Scotty would be going home.

No rocker has ever won American Idol, but James looked like he might be the first rocker to be an American Idol. James may not sell albums as well as Chris Daughtry, but should sell better than last year’s American Idol Lee DeWyze.

I expected Haley to be sent home tonight after the negative comments from Randy Jackson and Jennifer Lopez last night. Who knows?…Haley may have even been the highest vote-getter since the voting results are never released.

American Idol fans will never forget how James rocked the house week after week, and as far as I know never received a negative comment. Being a front-runner is not always good though as voters may vote more for someone in danger rather than vote for someone they think won’t need their vote.

LAUREN ALAINA SUDDETH

Lauren has gotten stronger each week, as she has hit her stride at the perfect time in the season. She may be getting more votes for her popularity, more than for her singing, but she is singing very well now and could very well be standing with Haley or Scotty at the finale.

HALEY REINHART

Haley looked like she may have been going home tonight after she was criticized by Randy Jackson and Jennifer Lopez. I was afraid she was going to be thought of as a complainer by the voters after she didn’t accept the statements that Jackson and Lopez made about her singing. On the other hand she may have gotten a lot of votes from voters who thought Jackson and Lopez ganged up on her undeservedly.

SCOTTY MCCREERY

Scotty is another singer who has sang better and better as the competition goes on. If Lauren is around at the finals, Scotty will have to split the country vote with Lauren. However, if either of them goes home next week, the one remaining should garner almost all of the country votes.

WHO WILL GET THE VOTES FOR JAMES DURBIN?

It will be interesting to try to figure out who will get the James Durbin votes. Since none of the remaining singers are rockers, the rock voters may not even vote the rest of the way.

POLL QUESTION:

Today’s poll question asks which of the remaining three contestants will be the American Idol.

    1. I agree, I totally loved American idol because of James. I never ever had watched this show. He was so good I watched it. It isn’t the same now. Something is definitely plotted. My heart goes out to him. I really looked forward to his next song.

      1. I know it hurt for him to be this close to the end and then shocked like he was last night. He will sell more records than anyone else on the show probably.

  1. First of all Congrats to the Contestants..i figures one of the girls would go home..Man was i wrong!! i thought i would be..Scotty,James and one of the girls..but Now Scotty has to really step it up his Song Choice and give the best performance since the competition started..Best of Luck To Scotty..My Votes got to you..You Rock Scotty!!

  2. WHY ALWAYS HALEY, .. SHE HAS THE BEST VOICE IN THIS YRS AOL. WHATS WRONG WITH LAUREN, OR SCOTTY GOING HOME. IVE NEVER HEARD RANDY OR J LO TELLING THE OTHERS HOW BAD THEY WERE AND THERE WERE TIMES I WAS SURPRISE.. THEY DID THE SAME TO CASEY JAMES. AND THANK GOD HE DIDNT WIN AND HE IS BETTER OFF.JUST WATCH CASEY JAMES AND CK HIM OUT AT THE CMA,S 2012. ALL I CAN SAY IS THERE ARE SOME JEALOUSE PEOPLE OUT THERE. WHEN JAMES PUTS OUT HIS CD AND HE WILL, YOU BUY IT… AND I WILL BUY HALEYS.. SHE IS IN THE RIGHT SPOT RIGHT NOW. SCOTTY IS A SOUND ALIKE.. JOSH TURNER… JUST CK IT OUT.. AND LAUREN , THERE ARE A DIME A DOZEN COUNTRY SINGERS LIKE HER….

    1. I am rooting for Haley to win. Lauren even said Haley has the best voice after Haley was criticized by Randy and Jennifer. Lauren said she was not a happy camper after the way the judges treated Haley except for Steven who told Haley to not listen to Randy and Jennifer. Lauren even said if anyone should be criticized it is Lauren herself. Haley was touched that Lauren stood up for her.
